a foster home. The foster mother was a Christian and took the child to
On the first day of Sunday School, the foster mother told the teacher
that the girl had never heard of Jesus, and to have patience with her.
The teacher held up a picture of Jesus and said, "Does anyone know who
this is?" The little girl said, "I do; that's the man who was holding
me the night my parents died."
